Aghast! Greenspan Is Critical Of QE Policy?

Aghast! Greenspan Is Critical Of QE Policy?

There was an article yesterday with comments by former Fed Chair Alan Greenspan as he came out criticizing recent QE policy decisions by the Fed.  I suspect if he had been there to see the potential damage with the others in 2008/09 then he might think differently.  But his notion was that the policy implemented did not improve the economy whatsoever.  This statement is hard to swallow as...

Brazilian Stocks, A Turn Around Play?

Brazilian Stocks, A Turn Around Play?

Maybe Dilma is not that bad.  Ok, that last comment is ridiculous. Dilma Rousseff, Brazil’s reelected president is horrible, one of the worst national leaders in the Americas, in fact.  She has micromanaged the Brazilian economy and killed the country’s growth in the process.  She has also eroded the independence of the central bank and stoked high inflation in the process.  The worst of it...

Go Ahead, Just Ignore My Advice

I just have to say, getting ignored affects my sense of worth, my confidence, and it marginalizes me in my profession. Why is the market ignoring my advice? Why is it gobbling up points as if there were no tomorrow? Doesn’t it appreciate the work I do to come up with the advice? So, here we are at new record highs intraday for the S&P 500. It surely did not take long to get back here,...

Resistance Is Futile

“Resistance is futile.” Don’t go there! I am not a Trekkie, but I have seen all the TV episodes and all the movies (I think), so I am familiar with the Borg, the space folk who take over the collective minds of other civilizations. Watching the market this morning, the Borg and their motto popped into my head (Could it be? No, no way!). Anyway, it struck me that the market can go here and go...

Netflix Is Worth A Look

Earnings gaps to the downside can provide a significant amount of technical damage to stocks. This kind of damage takes weeks or even months to repair, and you can use this to your advantage in the options market. After trading in a six-month range, NFLX had a massive gap down of over 100 points. Since then the sellers have cleared out, leading to a slow grind higher. What we are seeing as...

Slow Down and Chew More Carefully

Again, I would caution the market to take small bites and chew carefully before swallowing. Yesterday’s gulp chomped off another chunk of the big losses recently seen. Heck, the Dow is back above 17,000 and the S&P 500 crushed its most recent ceiling at 1967, finishing up 18 points higher at 1985. My guess is the market will heed my advice today, even though the economic data coming out...

For Phase I of Markets re-design, we are introducing simple OHLC bar charts with a volume histogram.

To adjust the period and scale of the chart, use the "slider" bar which appears underneath the Volume histogram frame. If the slider frame is not appearing, you may need to adjust the 'Zoom' view of your internet browser or adjust your screen resolution to a lower resolution.

By dragging the start and end arrows of the slider bar to the left and right, you can easily adjust the date range.

Features planned for Phase II will include a selection of chart types and a technical indicator library with the ability to define a custom date range for the chart data.
